It’s Friday! And Free Days

I must admit, I am glad that this week is over. It’s kind of been a roller coaster emotional week. Probably because TOM is coming around soon. But I’m still learning that when I’m having a bad day and I feel like crying, it’s better to just cry and get it out, instead of laying in bed and snacking while watching TV.

I finished my workout this morning. Again, finished at 10:30. I really love this workout. I mean, I hate it while I’m doing it (So hard! It burns!), but when I’m done… I feel amazing!

Tomorrow is Saturday which means that it’s my free day. I know some people don’t agree with “cheat days,” but it’s helped keep on the right eating path the other six days of the week. We eat out once a week, and it’s on Saturday. The other meals are our normal healthy meals. If there’s a dessert I want, I’ll wait until Saturday and have it. But I don’t gorge myself on Saturdays. I still drink a ton of water.

For example, last Saturday, for breakfast I had 2 hard boiled eggs and some strawberries, along with a liter of water. For a snack, I think I had one of those rolls of Smarties. (Rockets in Canada, but I’ll never call them that. It’s too weird.) Lunch, we went out to eat and ate Chicken Biryani and Chicken Tikka at our favorite Indian restaurant. I had a small bowl of ice cream at some point during the day. I can’t remember what dinner was, but it was the usual healthy meal which is always served with a big spinach and romaine salad.

I really feel good about having Saturday as a free day. During the week, if there’s some craving I have, I’ll just tell myself that I can have it on Saturday. That is good enough for me at the time. By the time Saturday rolls around, all of the things that I’ve told myself I could have, I don’t really want anymore. And it’s working so far.

Tomorrow, we’re going shopping. I’m hoping clothes will be fitting a bit better than last time I shopped. It’s been awhile!
